Reflection after writing a book

Creations / Tuesday, May 11th, 2021

N o words spin round my heart these days

O nly deep exhaustion and thankfulness and being –

T he questions answerless, the countless words of my

H istory less important than I thought. Laid to rest.

I n the afternoons I rest and in the sunshine I walk,

N ever alone. Never fully at peace, but also

G iven serenity I never expected. Body drained, mind quiet.


C ommotion is overrated. The words of others are a welcome gift

O n which I hang my soul for a time,

M editating on insufficiency, redemption, grace.

E ven in silence, his song

S urrounds me.


“The┬áLord┬áthy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

Let the
Lord whisper His
Everlasting peace
Deep into my soul.

I enjoyed the book and my review is live on my blog but I don’t know if NetGalley alerts you of a review or not. Amazon wouldn’t let me put a review up yet.

There is purpose in every season.

I like you even if you don’t have words to write these days.
